In brief: Nexium (esomeprazole) a great med.

Can certainly try bland diet & avoid acid containg or producing foods & beverages & raise head of your bed.
Avoid smoking, caffeine containing beverages, fried & fatty foods. May still have acid reflux & get tired of this boring diet. Life may well be much pleasanter taking a Nexium (esomeprazole) pill & think of it as a food suppliment. Good luck.
